Good morning All! We had a good time walking doggies yesterday (about 5). I'm already falling in love with a couple of really sweet well-behaved chihuahuas (don't tell my 16 year old Chiquita - picture below).

QOTD: Are you doing anything special for Valentines Day? We are going to a dinner/dance at the clubhouse tonight and I got DH some dark chocolate and a card for tomorrow (I don't like dark chocolate-LOL).

1 year, 10.5 months post-op

B: eggs, cottage cheese and Canadian bacon

L: Fish of some sort (out to lunch)

D: Meatballs and mozzarella sticks

S: Cottage cheese and/or yogurt

Good morning. I'm in the office but all the attorneys are traveling today - so I'm hoping for a quiet day.

QOTD: My husband has already expressed an interest in going out to lunch - in Boston. I'm not really liking the idea since I'm working at home and lunch in Boston will take a long time. We'll see.

B: steel cut oats

L: hummus with yellow peppers

D: chicken, veg

E: walk the dog hopefully

L/V: on track

If your husband is suggesting it, maybe he has something special planned? Mine wouldn't even have remembered...

What a cutie-pie!

Today it's just Art working from home - hopefully he'll refrain from distracting me. I've got a big list of things to accomplish, but I'm feeling good about the progress I made yesterday. I'm also planning to get out to run/walk and I have an alarm set so I'll to that OR ELSE.

QOTD: Totally not a holiday person in general - I was actually surprised when I went to the grocery store yesterday and there was all this red stuff everywhere :P So, no, not doing anything special for Valentine's Day.

1: protein shake
2: leftover Indian (the one downside of eating out is the guys finish their leftovers, if they have any, in one day.. but it takes me a week)
3: Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps (from this week's cookbook 30-Minute Get Real Meals: Eat Healthy Without Going to Extremes - trying not to feel dirty about using a Rachael Ray cookbook, but it's what the random number generator rolled up.)

liquid and vites: on track
exercise: run/walk, yoga stretching

I am not allowed by the hubby to volunteer because I would bring all of them home!

QOTD: Are you doing anything special for Valentines Day? We don't have plans, as the other half is working until 10:30. He usually doesn't do ANYTHING for Valentines Day as he says he loves me every day of the year (I'm rolling my eyes. He just doesn't want to shop.)

B: sausage

S1: cheese stick

L: Chicken with rasp/walnut lf dressing

D: Baked chicken

S: yogurt or SF pudding with protein powder

Here is Mickey's 9 month baby pic, the day I brought him home!

Oh my gosh Mickey is a cutie!!!! This is a picture of Emmy at 6 months old, the day I adopted her. She was a little scruffy back then. She was returned twice(I was never told the reason), so I am positive she was waiting for me:-) The second photo is 5 1/2 years later, she normally has long hair, but was just groomed.

Aw cute Chiquita! I took Fergus to the vet yesterday for an eyelid growth that started bleeding (just needed some eye drops). They saw us coming, and I ended up shelling out over $400 for all sorts of "necessary" senior dog checkup up stuff. Grrr.

QOTD: It'll be a single gal's Valentines for me. Movies with friends this afternoon and something out of the freezer for dinner. No chocolate. I ate that yesterday!

B - eggs and cheese

L - yogurt, berries, grain free granola

D - real good pizza

S - movie popcorn
